Auto Injury Chiropractor Facts


You’re “faking it” when your car accident caused little or no car damage.


There is no connection between vehicle damage and car accident injury. Permanent injury is possible in car accidents under 5 mph.


You can’t see a doctor/chiropractor after an accident if you don’t have Medical Insurance.


You have $15,000 in medical coverage – No Health Insurance Required!

Your fault or not, or as just a passenger or had liability insurance only, your car accident injuries are covered. Bills are sent directly to the car insurance company.


Your “minor” car accident injury will heal in 1-3 months.


Your “minor” injuries, if not treated, may never heal causing permanent pain and disability. Even with “minor” headaches, neck pain or low back pain you could have a serious injury that causes permanent pain and early arthritis.


Children don’t get injured in car accidents.


Kids are at a higher risk for brain injury. Preventable car accidents are the #1 killer of children. If you’re injured there’s a 70% chance your children are injured as well.

Q: Do I need a lawyer?
A: That’s ultimately up to you, but sometimes even your own company can increase your stress level. We’d rather you focus on getting better and let the lawyers focus on the stressful details.
Q: Insurance has already offered to settle the case…should I?
A: No. Consult with a lawyer first or at least get medically checked out. After you sign the settlement you may need more medical care that would be “out of pocket”.
